I just got inspired by looking at my amazing friends' blog (If you're hungry for inspiration on this lazy sunday, check out Wunderkabinett). Thanks to their blog, I discovered the beautiful art of Kelsey Brookes and am now one of his biggest fans.
Kelsey is a former biochemist who lives by the beach in San Diego. Lucky man. And he attributes his raw art style to an education system that "refuses to teach scientists to draw."
If you like loud, colorful, abstract, and just plain jaw-dropping good art, you've come to the right place. Here it is. The ingenious talent that is Kelsey Brookes.
Have you ever looked at someone's work and thought to yourself, "I want to DO THAT!" Randi Antonsen's work does that to me. Just look at it. All of it. She utilizes and mixes all kinds of medium (pen, pencil, ink, acrylic, watercolor, collage, etc.) and creates so much texture and depth. It's pure visual poetry. Take a look at her portfolio. There's so much good work that I don't even know what to do with myself.
